    Microsoft® Office For Home Use & Volume Licensing

    Morning,

    Does anyone know if you can deploy Office 2013 to staff like they are allowing students to with the Office 365 Student Advantage Link.

    I just had a play with the Home Use thing on the Volume licensing page and it just directs you to the Microsoft HUP £8.95 page. Do we still have to get them to bring their computers in for me to install it on them? Seems a shame when the subscription bit of Office 2013 seems to work fine.

    PS. Does anyone use the training programs, I had a play last week but it seems a pain to set up.

    You could buy a faculty license in o365 but it costs a lot more than hup.

    I prefer offering the HUP £8.95 offer. In this way the deal is between the staff member and Microsoft. You don't have any responsibility in having to ensure the program is removed if the staff member leaves the school.

    If you have an OVS agreement you will already be licensed for staff use on a personal device. It is just a matter of being able to supply the means and the key without it being abused.

    Which is the million dollar question, I mentioned I was updating to Office 2013 in the summer so staff want it too... be easier if M$ offered a subscription option in OVS
